Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry lays it all out there as to why Andre Greene Jr. is a top target at receiver for the 2022 cycle.
Andre Greene Jr. is an impressive young man first and foremost. He’s not just a talented WR prospect in the class of 2022.
Greene Jr. checks all the boxes. That is often the case for the receivers Cortez Hankton targets for Georgia. That said, there are two traits that go beyond the factory sticker on a touchdown-delivery device like this young man from Virginia.
Those elements often add to the formula of whether an All-American makes it big in college.
The St. Christopher’s School (Richmond, Va.) standout is as competitive as all get out. Like strait-jacket stuff. But in a good way. That’s evident by asking what he likes to do with his free time. He’s online. Greene will also watch movies and hang with his circle.
He will also duel with his father, Andre Sr., just about every night in the timeless board game Connect Four. When we use the term duel, that is the appropriate descriptor.
“My Dad, Mom and I also have a series we keep count in playing Connect Four,” he told DawgNation. “We have literally played over 1000 games against each other. I’m the best at it though.”
His mom is involved, but it seems like father and son are on a new level.
“I always have to put the count on my phone because he tries to cheat and change the numbers,” he said when it comes to those matches with his father.
As of late this week, that count was 484-426 in his favor. Andre Jr. saw his win tally rise after a 4-1 night. If we needed to place a sportsman’s wager on it, his count should be up to about 487 by now.
That’s 484 good reasons right there. That story makes the alarm bells go off for a competitive mindset, but also the acumen to track it on paper. The results of his work do matter to him.
The second thing to note is when he does anything, it will be done right. There is no “just good enough” or “superstar privilege” when it comes to his makeup.
“If I’m going to do something, I try and do my best,” Greene Jr. stated matter-of-factly. “All or nothing.”
